Byron and Chris enjoy the view from our in-progress rock wall (4/19/14)
When Whitelock gives you rocks, you make rock walls! This weekend we continued to scour our piles of granite to select the pieces with the best flat surfaces for mortaring together. Our hope is that the wall will be a comfortable place to sit and host upcoming neighborhood potluck dinners. We probably have about one more full day of work left to complete the project, but we've already gotten faster and more confident since starting last week.
We had great volunteer support this weekend, starting with Byron, our instructor from MICA's Social Design masters program, and continuing with Chris, Duwon, Toby, Everton, Andrea, Alan, and all the way to Ethan (seen below in the baby sling)! If you're interested in learning about future opportunities to help, we hope to sponsor these kinds of workdays almost every weekend this spring and summer.
